Biography

At the Racket - John Carty, fiddle and banjo; Brian McGrath, piano, tenor guitar and banjo; Seamus O’Donnell, flute, sax and vocals; Michael McCague, guitar - came together in 1997 and have produced two CDs to date, At the Racket and Mirth Making Heroes.

Their sound ranges from the Golden Era of vaudeville to traditional music played in a contemporary style. With echoes of the pioneering Irish dance bands of the 1920s, they combine swirling saxophone and banjo - a mix not too common in Irish music - with vamping piano and pulsating guitars, honeyed tones of fiddle and flute, along with a velvet voice!
